    "[Robinson's] prose is our flight out, a keen instrument of vision and transcendence." —O, the Oprah Magazine
    Hailed as "incandescent," "magnificent," and "a literary miracle" (Entertainment Weekly), hundreds of thousands of readers were enthralled by Marilynne Robinson's Gilead. Now Robinson returns with a brilliantly imagined retelling of the prodigal son parable, set at the same moment and in the same Iowa town as Gilead.

    A luminous and healing book about families, family secrets, and faith from one of America's most beloved and acclaimed authors.
    The Reverend Boughton's hell-raising son, Jack, has come home after twenty years away. Artful and devious in his youth, now an alcoholic carrying two decades worth of secrets, he is perpetually at odds with his traditionalist father, though he remains his most beloved child. As Jack tries to make peace with his father, he begins to forge an intense bond with his sister Glory, herself returning home with a broken heart and turbulent past.
    Home is a luminous and healing book about families, family secrets, and faith from one of America's most beloved and acclaimed authors.
